Sexual Dimensions Personality Test
The Sexual Dimensions Personality Test (or “Sexy Seven” Test) was developed David P. Schmitt, Ph.D. and David M. Buss, Ph.D. to measure differences in personality on seven sex-specific dimensions. Using statistical analysis, Schmitt and Buss discovered seven scales pertaining to human sexuality, all of which displayed moderate to high levels of validity and correlated well with the scientific “Big Five” system of personality.

The Sexual Dimensions of Personality Test has repeatedly been shown to measure statistically significant differences in the sexual attitudes of men and women.
